Clear coat over spray paint

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of a clear coat type of paint/spray/sealer that would not affect spray paint. I've painted a drum set for a friend and he said he'd like it to be clear coated. I know a lot of sprays will eat into the spray paint, and that some varnishes and sealers will do the same. anyone have any experience in clear coating painted wood/plastic?

ive used krylon clear coat spray over multiple brands of spray paint (mtn hardcore, rusto, krylon). without any issues. never used it on wood or plastic but i clearcoated a couple of my freights that i really like to protect them from sun and weather damage.. kinda geeky but whatever.

 

i think the main thing is to make sure that the spray paint you are clear coating has had a chance to thoroughly set, like a day or so. then just follow the instructions and dont overspray the clearcoat or the thinner in it will indeed cause your spray paint underneath to run.

Krylon Triple-Thick Glaze is your best option. It's a brush on with a pancake syrup like consistency.

Do not spray clear coat onto paint that's still curing/drying.

it will wrinkle and fuck up the paint if it's not completely cured.

 

It either has to be sprayed within a few minutes of the paint while the paint is still wet and not curing,

or just wait a few hours or a day or two depending on the brand and how long it takes to cure.

Ive bought this lacquer coat by Rusto thats pretty nice. Its not thick and wont turn white if sprayed too much. although Mercer brings the good point...the original paint must be cured before you add the clear coat.

Krylon triple thick is what i'll use then, thanks a lot Bojangles. I finished painting them yesterday so I'll get that shit on today and it should be all good. You can feel free to close this thread.
